Dying Famous / Press

“Treasure Valley hard rock quartet, Dying Famous is delivering its own brand of engaging rock and roll revelry. Their often unpredictable, always entertaining, high energy performances have earned the band a reputation as "A Must See!". Bassist Randy Sohn gives the band a propulsive groove and drummer Dylan Williams provides the powerful and dynamic backbone. Lead guitarist Dustin Jones cuts straight to the emotion and vocalist/guitarist Zane McGinley delivers in charismatic form. Last spring the band released its debut record, 40 Minutes Late. Recorded live in just 25 hours, the album captures the raw energy and grit that is Dying Famous. 40 Minutes Late has already received radio play across the United States and in the U.K.”

“I have been in the concert business for well over a decade and I must say that Dying Famous is a band that really gets it! Each time they have played Knitting Factory they have impressed me with their live performance and I appreciate how they present themselves behind the scenes. Dying Famous is a true DIY band that successfully promotes their shows and connects with their fans. They have great merchandise and a loyal fan base. We always look forward to having them on our stage.”

Gary Pike General Manager - Knitting Factory Concert House Boise Id.

"Dying Famous has mixed old school rock n roll with a modern sound, twisting their music into a kick ass rock n roll show! Hopefully they don't live up to their name, so the rest of the world can enjoy them for a very long time."

"It has been my pleasure to be a follower and fan of Dying Famous for about 4 years now. I have watched this band mature over the years into one of the most entertaining bands to see live. Zane the lead singer is one of the most passionate and dynamic singers I have seen in many years. Their new album is amazing in how it captures the spirit of the band. If you get the chance to see this band live I say Do It!!!! Keep your eyes on this group I predict they will go far.

“Dying Famous has played numerous shows in Idaho and along the West Coast. The band signed with Tate Music Group last August, recorded its debut album 40 Minutes Late last October and will play the Knitting Factory on Saturday, Feb.”

"I really liked you guys, and I don't like bands, so don't take that lightly."

Bill Manspeaker, Green Jelly

"The music ! The show ! F**king Porkable! This Band is insane!

Stephen Baxter - Sin Magazine

“I think it is awesome that you guys have a unique and original sound. There is a lot of bad music out there right now. Dying Famous is a voice in the dark night, a light at the end of the tunnel, and something cool in a world full of copycats and regurgitated sound! Keep rockin' it Dying Famous style! - Author Daniel Patrick O'Roure”

“There are famous last words, famous words on death and, of course, famous dead people. But there is only one Dying Famous; well maybe two: Dying Famous the band and Dying Famous the movie, starring, of course, Dying Famous.”

“Dying Famous has courted fans with an original mix of rock, alternative rock and punk. McGinley's magnetic on-stage presence is characterized by him belting out lyrics while clad in his trademark black kilt. Dying Famous is the fifth movie effort from Gough, who has shot three other documentaries and one feature-length film.”
